Sarah Chalke

"Dr. Elliot Reid' of Scrubs was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in 1976.
Sarah made her debut in acting, in a made-for-TV movie City Boy (1992).
In 1993, after her first film, she auditioned for the role of Becky on the TV
series "Roseanne" (1988). The show was looking for a replacement after
Alicia Goranson quit the show to go to college. Sarah graduated from High
School in 1995, while shooting the 1994-1995 season of "Roseanne" (1988).
Also in 1994, Sarah co-starred in the film Ernest Goes to School (1994) along
with Jim Varney. Then in 1996, she starred in 2 films, including Robin of Lock-
sley (1996) (TV), and also Stand Against Fear (1996) (TV), where she played
a cheerleader, Krista Wilson. At times on the set of "Scrubs" (2001), Sarah is
referred to as "Becky #2" in response to her being the second "Becky" on
"Roseanne" (1988). She has dogs named Harley and Tankers.

Suzi Laguna Niguel California

SUZI ASKS: Sorry, I didn't mean to make more work for you.
I was just curious. I get at least 3 band requests a day, that I
sort through, and I love all kinds of music, though some of the
80's has me perplexed..lol

Sometimes everybody starts sounding the same.. and it's amazing
when you find someone unique like Aldo Roxx or The Morning Riot,
or Idle Ride...where I'm actually moved to buy a CD or EP.

I'm starting to have a bad attitude with some radio stations after all
the payola stuff...sometimes songs really suck and they pump the heck
out of them..it makes it feel as if it's just big business generating
"so called hits".

Do you get pretty much a free hand to choose your playlists based on
your instinct/mood.. listener request...or do you have a "big brother"
that "strongly suggests"?

OK, I'm off my soap box now..lol Feeling a little Dennis Miller-esque.
'my bad.

Thanks again Jonathan! Suzi

I hear where you are coming from Suzi. I'll answer the last part
first. My shows due to the respect of the powers of the company I work for
towards me, I have complete control of what I play and say on my shows.
I am blessed to have that. Very few do. No one can change what I do, or
otherwise I walk. That's not really a threat, it's reality and they know it. I
am semi-retired and not doing this for the money. So I guess you could say
that I am totally clean and not beholding to anyone. I do what I do. That's it.

Now, as to how I program, as I have stated on my shows many times, it is
a mood-ring. It depends on mood, whatever, when I am actually putting the
individual shows together. I walk around my office which has over 12,000
CD's in alphabetical order, and in catagories, and just have fun. That would
be for the Saturday morning show, where I select music from the past, and
some new music. The Sunday evening show is all new music.

Yes, sometimes much of the new music does begin to sound alike. There is
so much good and bad music, that choosing is not an easy task. As far as
Myspace goes, I generally accept almost every artist/band...and then check
them out at a later time. Why? Because I recieve at least 30 CD's a week from
labels and musicians. So my listening is well tested. The one's I choose from
Myspace do get attention. I can't play them every week, but I do give them as
much exposure as I can over a period of time. Gems like Aldo Roxx come
along every once in awhile.

As far as 'regular' radio and the repetitive plays, well, that's radio in general.
They want you the listener to feel the familiarity. Part of it then becomes the
listeners fault. The more they call and request the song, it gets played over
and over. As far as payola goes, I stay away from that subject as much as I
can. I am squaeky clean and will remain so. I can't say that for many in radio,
or on the record label's side. Hope this answers all the parts to your Q?

Suzi, always stay on that soapbox! ;-)

Beck Amory Mississippi

I would like to know your thoughts and the thoughts
of others on the "Loose Change" video that has become a hot topic ??

I would understand if you do not want to talk about the subject of our
government.. after-all, there are alot of mixed opinions on this video.

I have done research on this topic and I honestly do not know how I
feel about the "Loose Change" video.

But, I'm all about the "government" issue and I always try to get others
views about our country. So, once again, I would understand if you choose
to dodge this one.

Beck, I have not seen the video, so I wouldn't have an answer
that would qualify as intelligent. From what I gather it has something to
do with a 911 conspiracy?

As far as our government goes, the current administration has dug 'us' into
a deep dark hole. I feel bad about our service men and women that have
been used as pawns in an ugly war, that we began and cannot seem to
figure out how to end it. I could on and on, Bush, Cheney, and the others
are our worst nightmare come true-for 8 friggin' years.

Friendly Dr. Bobo Boboville Massachusetts

DR. BOBO ASKS: What are your true feelings about a government
conspiracy behind 9/11?

I guess this is an extension of the above question. Last year
I put a link to a film that had to do with a 911 conspiracy on this website.

I forget the title of the short film. It made some good points. I truely cannot
honestly buy into everything about said conspiracy, but I am sure there are
many that do.

Rather than disect this issue, I would rather use my exit strategy and just
blame George Bush Jr. and Sr. for everything.

Marie (aka ~`Reezie`~) Atlanta Georgia

Hi Jonathan. Wisdom can't be bought but only
learned through years of lifes experiences.

The most valuable wisdom lesson I have learned is people tend
to set themselves up for failure before anything happens which
in return creates anxiety. I never new I was doing this for many
years and even though I have succeeded in many things the anxiety
was torture.

What would be the most wise lesson you have learned in your time
so far, besides getting married at 18? lol

hugs, Marie

To only speak when spoken to. Always say what's
on my mind, even it means hurting someone's feeling. I learned
a looooong time ago to keep it real.

Keeping in what you really feel and want or wanted to say just
builds up inside, and you are the one that suffers.

Example: Last week Jeanette went out to pick up some Mexican food.
As she waited on line, right next to her was a huge man and his 8-year
old daughter. He leaned down and said to his little girl "see, look what's
happening to the neighborhood, all these porn stars are moving in".

Jeanette heard it, it was directed at her. She came home and told me
what happened, and was angry.

I said, well first-good thing I wasn't there...but if I had...this is what I
would have said to him..."I'm flattered you think my wife is a porn star
man, she's hot...but I'll tell you what's really wrong with the neighborhood,
it's obese people like you taking up so much space".

Point: Say what you feel. And by the way, considering we live in such a
highly moralistic society (Thanks George fuckin' W), here is a fat fuck of
father using the word 'porn' to his 8-year old daughter. Some morals, huh?

Sue London England

SUE ASKS: Nice to hear from you!!!
Ok, answer me this - why do I NOT stand up for myself???

Hope things are great with you.
Sue X

PS. That's got you stumped hasn't it?????

Wow Sue, you need either self-esteem or at least confidence.
I don't know under what circumstances that you don't stand up for yourself?
I dunno, get angry, get mad maybe? Don't be a sheep.

But then again, I am stumped why you would ask me such a question. It's
okay though. I hope things are great with you also. :-)

Matt Jericho Radio Personality x103.9 Dayton Ohio

MATT ASKS: Fort Wayne, honest thoughts?

Strange question Matt. I know you have moved on to
Dayton. Fours years ago when Shawn Alexander and myself drove
(I did all the driving-lol) through the Midwest visiting radio stations,
yes we did stop in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. Had a wonderful dinner with
you and my dear friend JJ Fabini.

I hope that you have let go of any ill feelings for not being at that
station anymore. Hence the question maybe?

Okay, so here is how I feel about the Midwest in general. I wouldn't
live there, but I liked some of the places we saw. Now Ft. Wayne,
which is a small city wasn't bad at all. Truthfully. On the other hand,
that other city in Indiana, the big one, Indianapolis is huge bowl of
swirling shit. What a messed up place that was. In comparison, the
quaint small city of Ft. Wayne was golden.

Keren Stroud, Gloucestershire United Kingdom

KEREN ASKS: I was going to ask out of all the bands you interviewed
who was your favourite, but you kinda answered that with Gene out
of Kiss...
so now I'm stuck as to what to ask.

I was going to ask what your favourite record is, but that was sort of
touched upon...
so now I'm struggling.

got one...if you were stranded on a desert island, but somehow had
means of power for a stereo...
what are the 5 records you would take with
you and why?

JONATHAN: This is always a toughie Keren. It could change 5-minutes
after I type it, but this is for pretty sure what I would take with me.

In no particular order:

1. Mother Love Bone "Apple" (Every song is great!)
2. Ramones "Ramonesmania" (This has two-discs of awesome songs
and it was the only Gold Record the band ever got. I have one and
damn proud to have it on my wall)
3. XTC "English Settlement" (Andy and Colin at their finest)
4. Rolling Stones "Beggars Banquet" (My fav Stones album)
5. Anything by Motorhead, Joan Jett, and Pixies (Love 'em all)

(I know I cheated on the last one-lol--sorry ;-)

Debby (aka Living Dead Girl) Phoenix Arizona

DEBBIE ASKS: If you could cure a disease what one would it be?

JONATHAN: Cancer. All kinds. A very deadly disease. AIDS,
heart disease, MS, Blindness, and others come very quickly to
mind also. I wish there was no disease at all, but, other than
family history, we (the world) have caused most of this by
the air we breathe, the food we eat, and blah, blah, blah.

Joanne Manchester England

JOANNE ASKS: Hi Jonathan. It's Jo.... haha
My question. If I had one wish, and you were the man to make it
come true. Would you, on your radio station say,
here's an up and
coming talented writer, who deserves to have a screenplay
adapted in to film.

Or for her play to be on Madison Avenue, New York,

Joanne Devine, her name and remember where you heard it first,
the Jonathan L show.

Now don't be shy you producers and directors.

Ask anything I did...hope your well.
Jo x

JONATHAN: Please don't take it personal Jo, but my show is about
music, nothing but music...not a aural classified section. Having said
that though, I don't know...maybe I would. You never know. If there
was the right reason for me to take 30 seconds and mention it, who
knows? But, probably not. :-(

Oh, wait-if it was a wish-okay if I was a genie, yes-yes, it would happen!

Marlee Matlin
Marlee Beth Matlin was born in Morton Grove, Illinois in 1965, to Don and Libby
Matlin; she was their third child. Marlee became deaf at the age of 18 months
due to a bout with Roseola Infantum. That didn't stop her, though, from acting
in a children's theatre company at age 7; she was Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz."
Her deafness never held her back. As an adult she said it so eloquently: "I have
always resisted putting limitations on myself, both professionally and personally."
Marlee studied Criminal Justice at Harper College in Palatine, Illinois, and main-
tained her passion for acting after graduating. While performing on stage through-
out Chicago and the Midwest, Marlee attracted notice for her performance in a pro-
duction of the Tony award-winning play "Children of a Lesser God" and was cast in
the movie version in 1986. Husband is a police officer. Has one daughter named
'Sarah Rose' . Was married in Henry Winkler's (the Fonz's) backyard. Youngest
Winner to win the Oscar in the Best Actress Category at the age of 21. This brave
woman says "Silence is the last thing the world will ever hear from me."

Arcenic Virginia Beach Virginia

ARCENIC ASKS: Okay, what is the most illegal/wrong and illicit
thing you have ever done?
You said ANYTHING.

That's something for sure. Cheers - Arsenic

Probably doing drugs when I was much younger. But I think
that's something many of us do and go through. The trick is to stop, and
get on with life. It's sad to see numerous aquantances and some friends
still going back and forth to rehab centers. Or in some cases worse.

Ok, the worst thing I ever did was when I was 16, the day I quit school.
On my way out I had an altercation with a teacher who said something
to me with a smirk. I went home (a block away from school), and then
went back about an hour later and jumped him in the hallway with an
ice pick and a length of chain. I missed his heart by inches with the pick
after knocking him down with the chain. It took two other teachers to
get me off him. I was arrested 3 days later and began a two year period
of court, incarceration and finally 6 years of parole/probation. There were
other offenses after that, which I won't go into now.

I inherited a nasty temper from my father. As I grew up, my temper is
much more in control.

JONATHAN: A successful witty comiedian like Bill Maher. I can't think
of anyone who can deliver his words better.

Naw, I always dreamed of being an airline pilot. Flying everywhere in
the world, staying in crappy hotels (lol), and well, just being so high in
the air naturally.

Connie Lee Stockholm Sweden

CONNIE LEE ASKS: Hi Jonathan. If you were to turn back the
hands of time and rechange the outcome of something you had
done and regretted what would that be?

Gimme those hands of time, and not get married at
age 18. The worst move in my life. Especially to someone who
was a foster child and had more baggage than a huge flight
returning from a long distance trip. As a mature adult, I can
easily dismiss thinking about it now. But, 19-years of marriage
to someone who doesn't really like you, and ditto...was a very
regrettable event.

Shawn Rock Radio Personality Manhattan Kansas

SHAWN ASKS: Jonathan. You've been so blessed as to know the
late Joey Ramone.

The Ramones have been a large part of my life for a long time....and
now, my kids are superfans. To the point that next month, I've been
asked to make a "Ramones" Birthday cake for two of my children!!

How did he (Joey) touch or change your life?

Shawn, I think we touched each others, because we both
had cancer.

I first saw the Ramones in the late 70s on visits back to New York to my
mother (R.I.P.). When I began in radio in 1982, I played the shit out of
the Ramones. Joey was the main person who did interviews with radio,
except Dee Dee who did some, but more for himself when he put out his
first solo recording as Dee Dee King.

Joey and I started out as the typical radio/musician relationship. Into the
90s I did more radio interviews with Joey and always did stage announce-
ments at their shows. I hung out backstage many times. That would be
the normal relationship.

In 1996, as most that know me, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I was
walking dead. Thanks to a turn of events I was saved by the world reknown
Dr. Donald Skinner at the USC Norris Cancer Center in Los Angeles. Joey had
heard about it and called me after I began the recovery process. From that
moment on our relationship turned to a kinship that only people with cancer
can understand. Keep in mind I was not in radio at that time. I was working
for The Album Network, a music industry trade magazine. He devulged to
me that he had bone marrow cancer. He trusted me enough to tell me that.
I can assure you that other than his immediate family, and maybe Monte,
their manager, very few people knew why Joey was constantly sick during
their long two year goodbye tour.

The often phone calls, playing me music with his guitar over the phone, the
often e-mails, and my visit to his apartment in New York City for an hour,
are moments that I cherish, and will for the rest of my life. Jeffrey Hyman
might have been Joey Ramone, but to me he was just a real person. That
is what touched me the most.

For you readers that would like to read my tribute to Joey, please go to
www.jlradio.com/page9.html and click on my bio.

PS: Shawn, the photo of your son Mason as 'Mason Ramone' is still up on
one of my photo galleries. The birthday cake thing is awesome, have fun
with that. :-)

Sue Taylor Manager/Promoter Sheffield England

Have you ever played in a band?
Were you a journalist first?

Sue, No I haven't ever played in a band. The closest I
ever came to that would be back in 1993 when Frank Black, and Eric
Drew Feldman and I sung The Eagles "Hotel California" for about
30-seconds. It was a spur of the moment thing while I had him live
on the air on KUKQ. Funny moment, but it felt good to sing with
them. ;-)

Yes, I began with an underground weekly on Long Island called "The
Express", which competed with "Good Times". I was their deadline
artist. When I moved from New York to Arizona in 1973, a year later
I started my own monthly called "Newsreal" with $50. I published for
11 years, and learned how to write , edit, manage people, and so many
other skills. Due to my magazine it allowed me to write for many other
publications over the years since. That's why I enjoy doing this website.
It's an extension of my earlier years.

Jeff (aka Illuminatist) Glendale Arizona

JEFF ASKS: So, I just got laid off from my job, where I was making
decent money for once. I've always kind of considered a cool job like
working on the radio but as far as I know radio doesn't pay new people
and I have to make at least 10+ per hour.

Are there any other jobs than unpaid internships? Paying jobs there that
you don't really need a degree for? I guess I'm just frustrated with finding
a source of income and any guidance I could get on this would really
be appreciated.


This is a tough one Jeff. I'm sorry you got laid off. Getting
jobs are pretty hard nowadays. I feel for ya man. Interships with no or
little pay is the only way to break into radio unfortunately. Especially if
you have no prior experience. A van driver maybe? A promotions assistant?

Both are thankless jobs anyway. You didn't say what field you were in, so
I have very little to go by. As far as radio goes, I am not trying to discourage
you, but radio is not the enviable field it once was.

SpiderBaby Roller Derby Star Memphis Tennessee

SPIDERBABY ASKS: Have you gotten to meet your musical idol?

To be honest, not to sound crass SpiderBaby, I don't
really have any 'idols'. I am a huge fan of a number of people,
though. I guess if I have to narrow it down to meeting one, I would
say Joey Ramone. We were friends. In the true sense. That will be
explained later in week (someone asks about my friendship with Joey).

As far as music/radio people and the fine line of real friendship and/or
superficial relationships will be explained below. Just scroll down a tad.
*(See MissGinni)

As far as just 'meeting' someone, I would say Gene Simmons from
KISS, who I interviewed live on the radio. What a character!
*Not to name drop-but some other impressive people I have met and
at least held a conversation with out of the near thousand musicians
I have either met or interviewed in person range from; Laurie Anderson,
Moby, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Peter Steele (Type O Negative), Dido,
David Bowie, Ronnie Spector (kinda friends actually), Henry Rollins,
Joe Strummer, BT and I think I will stop there...too many. Sorry, I got
carried away.-LOL

Nicole Skin Artist United Kingdom

NICOLE ASKS: If you were offered a tattoo, free of charge, any size...
what you would ask for and where would you want it?

And would you want it doing by a male or female?

Dimmi tutto!!

Free, huh? Well, it would be a Chinese scenic design on my
back. Something like a forest, maybe. Entire back.

As for it being done by a man or a woman, wouldn't matter, so long as I
trusted them. See, getting your body inked is not only a very personal
matter, but you want to feel comfortable with the 'skin artist'. I have had
only one tat done by a woman, and that was years ago. I trusted her to
cover-up an earlier tat. But since then I simply haven't run across another
woman 'skin artist'. That was in Tucson, Arizona in 1978.

Currently I use Isaac of Tempe, because he came higly recommended by
the other two, Small Paul, and Mike Roper, who have done most of my
ink. I feel safe and comfortable with Isaac.

By the way, I had a woman dentist who was awesome, 'til she left and I
couldn't find out where she went. Currently my wife and I have an African-
American woman family doctor. So it really isn't whether I wouldn't have
my body inked by a woman...just simply don't know any at this point in
time except you...and it's a long distance from Arizona to the U.K.-lol ;-)

MissGinni *Hates*Her*Ex* Richmond Virginia

MISS GINNY ASKS: Hey-I went to your site and bookmarked it.

You are good friends with Frank Black? I love him.

Yes, Charles (Frank) and I have been friends for many years.
He called the other day from DC from the Lincoln memorial where he was
with his wife Violet and their children.

He was opening up for the Foo Fighters that night.

Ginny, thanks for bookmarking the website.

Charles Thompson (his sur name) and I first met many years ago when he
was with The Pixies. This is where that fine line of just a radio/musician
relationship is tested. Prior to my leaving radio in 1995 and moving to
Los Angeles, it was strictly a radio/musician relationship. Quite typical.
Sure I got go on his bus, etc.

When I moved to Los Angeles, he lived in Canoga Park at the time with
his long time girlfriend Jean. He would come over to my old condo in
Hollywood. My wife Jeanette, Jean, Charles and I went to see Billy
Bragg together, He drove his big old classic yellow Caddillac. We spoke
on the the telephone fairly often. He would come to my office in Burbank,
and sometimes we would go to a dive diner called ironically 'Franks'.
He came on last minute notice to help me with a demo I did for KROQ
at a recording studio, as my special guest. He called one day and asked
me if I would go with him to Largo in Hollywood to see our old friend
Stan Ridgeway (Wall Of Voodoo) perform. I said yes, and he came to my
house in Los Feliz and picked me up, and off we went.

We still speak every so often on the phone, so this is a REAL friendship.
Very rare. When you have their cell and home number and they yours,
then you know it's for real. He now lives in Oregon by the way.

PS: If you would like to hear a rare 15-minute radio chat with live music
from Frank Black-go to www.myspace.com/jlsmusic

Lamia Cross Vocalist Paris France

LAMIA ASKS: Okey Jonathan I love this !!

Do you celebrate your marrige anniversary ^^?

If yes how do you celebrate it ?

JONATHAN: Finally, another non-musical question. Well Lamia, we do.
Nothing fancy. Usually a nice dinner either out, or take in, and a passion
filled evening of sex. We aren't the type to go out of town, we can do
that most any time. Just a special evening together. Of course I get her
flowers (which I do often anyway), she loves flowers, and a card means
an awful lot to her. Again, buying jewelry and other gifts don't really
mean much to Jeanette. It's those cards and flowers that brings happy
tears to her eyes every time. :-)

Mindy Friendswood Texas

MINDY ASKS: If you could hang out with a famous musician for
24 hours, who would it be and why?

I've hung out with many, but for 24 hours, it would have
to be Madonna. I would just stare at her for 24 hours.-LOL
I actually do like her, and find her a very interesting person.

Stoopid New York

Just gotta know - Is your son single ?

JONATHAN: Yes, my eldest Russell (who is on my Myspace
profile) is happily married. Our middle son is also. Youngest is
not. One daughter is, and one is not.

May I ask you a question?
Why do you hide behind a photo that is not you? Just curious.

STOOPID A bit paranoid I guess - I have an ex I have to hide from,
for my safety.

I hate it that I can't live normally like most of the world. I must say, I'm
surprised you have time to answer e-mail so promptly, being a famous
personality - that's cool of you.

I don't know about the famous part, but I feel sorry for you,
that you can't be yourself due to some drama in your life. :-(

Steph (aka Pervert) Cornwall, Ontario Canada

STEPH ASKS: I have a question..


juuust kidding

Steph, I know you are kidding, but I would love to answer this. You
see, in a world where communication is key, I pleasantly annoying all of you so
I can have a page like this on my website. I enjoy seeing what all of you think on
questions that are sometimes simple, and sometimes 'deeper'. I also believe that
you, the readers are interested to see what your peers think. I would like to think
that I am nuturing some real friendships that go beyond the typical "myspace

I am also reaching out to an international audience that hopefully will listen to my
radio shows once KUPD-FM begins streaming on the internet, which is finally just
around the corner. So, I expect you will be hopefully listening when that happens.

Divabunnie Bismark North Dakota

DIVABUNNIE ASKS: Ask you anything?? Good grief, man,
you ARE brave...lol.

Ok, since you and I, as well as many others, are music junkies,
my question is this:


(Food for thought, JL and I'd be curious to hear what others have to
say too, before I tell you my response ;)

Diva, if we look at the last ten years only-1996-2006, than it
would have to be the death knell of something that myself and a small hand-
ful of persons developed, struggled, enjoyed, and finally achieved. A radio
format known as 'alternative' radio. 'Alternative ' radio was meant to be music
that was different, and more inspiring than the normal fare of radio music. Plus,
it was a lifestyle.

From 1982 to 1989 I was one of the spearheads and pioneer of 'that' format. In
1989 we finally achieved our goal. Recognition from the music industry. From
1989 to 1994 it was a glorious and refreshing time period. In 1994 anyone that
was involved could feel the air of change coming.

Precisely in 1996, ten years ago is when 'alternative' became a BRAND. A watered
down, heavily formatted boring drag. The same happened in 1979 to 1989. It was
a format that tasted success. The original lifestyle of 'alternative' became a mass
consumed acceptable and viable source for financial reasons and lost site of it's
roots. Over a hundred radio stations that were primarliy the same, with the ex-
ception of a few that dearly held on to it's original roots. The original format by
the way, was 11 stations in 1989. We felt special ;-)

So the 'trend' I would say would be the demise of an original radio format. Today
it is a mere shell of itself. I guess as far as other trends go also I would say the
'Boy Band' era. Ugh.-lol

Sarah (aka Whatever happened to baby Sar?) Wirral United Kingdom

SARAH ASKS: Whats the first record you ever bought????

I'm interested to know this as I wanna see where you came
from musically.

Okay Sarah, wanna really know. I was eleven years old in 1957
and went to a store called Woolworth's in Levittown, Long Island, New York,
and for, I think it was 29 cents, bought a single that was on the WMCA "Good
Guys" Top 21 playlist which was posted each week in their record section. The
following is information from www.allmusic.com about that 45 RPM single.

Simon & Garfunkel's recording history actually predated their first mid-'60s hit
by almost a decade. Childhood friends while growing up together in Forest Hills,
NY, they began making records in 1957, performing (and often writing their own
material) in something of a juvenile Everly Brothers style. Calling themselves
Tom & Jerry, their first single, "Hey Schoolgirl," actually made the Top 50, but
a series of follow-ups went nowhere. The duo split up, and Simon continued to
struggle to make it in the music business as a songwriter and occasional per-
former, sometimes using the names of Jerry Landis or Tico & the Triumphs.

The funny thing is that I don't really know how that shaped my musical
taste, but you asked, and there it is. Tom & Jerry. LOL

Carrie (aka Ophelia on Fire) Seattle Washington

CARRIE ASKS: Hello Jonathan L. First of all, are you the same
Jonathan L that used to DJ for KUKQ?

If so, thank you for all the great music that painted the background
and inspired the best moments of my life.

A question I would ask you, what is your favorite band/artist and why?

The Ramones. For personal reasons, which I will answer
later in the week, because of a similar question.

Yes, I am the same person. You can read the "History of KUKQ' on my
website. Go to the Archives page www.jlradio.com/page9.html

Thank you Carrie. Your comment sincerely makes me feel good.

Carrie-Anne Moss
Okay, if you've seen any of or all 3 of the "MATRIX" movies, then this face,
who celebrates her birthday today is quite familar.
Carrie-Ann grew up in
Vancouver, British Columbia as youngest of two children. At the age of 20
she moved to Europe to pursue a career in modeling. In Spain she managed
to get a regular role in the TV show "Dark Justice" (1991), which was prod-
uced in Barcelona for the 1st season, and followed it to the shooting locations
in Los Angeles the next year. Later she appeared in numerous commercials

Queen of the Desert (1994) in separate films: Hugo Weaving in The Matrix in
(1999), Guy Pearce in Memento (2000) and Terence Stamp in Red Planet also
in 2000.
Bears a slight resemblance to fellow Canadian k.d. lang. Here is one
of her personal quotes;
"After The Matrix, I cannot wear sunglasses. As soon
as I put them on, people recognise me."

Birthday's today:

Alex Falkirk Scotland

ALEX ASKS: Ok, here is a reasonably personal question for you
based on feedback I've had from the general public Jonathan.

I have a number of profiles on various groups, which range from
Transgendered groups, to gay and Bi based, and some which are
regarded as mostly straight. I never hold back on informing people
that I'm a male to female transgendered girl, as I hate to mislead

However, I do get a lot of people contacting me after looking at my
photos without taking the time to read my profile. They express their
interest in me initially, and then you can't see them for dust when the
light goes on in their head after realising what I am. This is the general
reaction from not only straight people, but also Bi folks, and gay women.

It seems that no matter what their sexuality is, no one can fully accept
me as being a female knowing I had been born as a male.

So my question is this hunny:

Would you as an individual be able to overlook societies limited expectations
about what makes a male or female, and be happy to be attracted to a person
regardless of their previous gender?

Luv, Alex. xxx

Alex, as you know, I was the one that asked you onto my
profile and into my world. I read all profiles before I ask ANYONE on. Yes,
you are beautiful, whether you were a man and now a woman, but that's
not the reason I asked you on. Just like the way I program music on my
radio shows...I like diversity. My friends list consists of lesbians, bi, and
other t-girls, as well as straights.

As I honestly opened up the last time I did the "ask Jonathan" thing, yes I do
have a femine side to me, as much as I am a 'macho' hetero. What I like about
you Alex is that we have at least have had some small chat exchanges, and I find
you to be a charming person.

But, I can surely understand bias and loathing from others. They are afraid and
use their nastiness, and lack of compassion to make themselves feel better. That
sounds strange, but being around a lot of gay men and women (remember, I've
been in the radio/entertainment industry a long time), I see the bias, as much
as I see tolerance. But true understanding and acceptence unfortunately is some-
thing that most have a hard time with. They ARE afraid.

Not to patronize you in any way...maybe it's because I am older and hopefully
wiser (lol), me personally, I am more open now than ever in my life. A few
years back two of my very dearest friends Nan and Roothie (life partners) took
me, my wife Jeanette and a few others to a restaurant called Lucky Cheng's in
New Orleans. There are two others in the States, one in Miami and the other in
New York City. It's where you order Asian food and all the servers are either
transvestites or transgendered pre-ops. They were extremely gorgeous, and the
best of the lot kissed me on the lips. You know what, at the moment it didn't
matter to me what sex that person was. Nice kiss. To this day, my wife still
says it was one of the most fun times we've ever had. We even have their
menu framed and hanging up in the house. (sorry didn't mean to get off-track)

Alex, I cannot speak for others, only myself. Would I be attracted to you if
I was not married or in a relationship? Sure. As long as you were as beautiful
on the inside as the outside. I am the type of person who doesn't really care
what others think about me. Anyone who knows me and reads this, knows this
to be true.

I chose to begin with you Alex because yours will be the most challenging
question I'm asked this week. I'm pretty sure of that.

I hope I have answered your question with some resolve.

Miss B Germany

Ooooh...so I shall ask you a question.

Please tell me that you own a Harley Davidson and that you can
play guitar/bass or drums!!!

rock hard!

Ahh, Miss B, NO, I don't own a Harley Davidson, and NO,
I don't or can't play any instrument. Ahh, but I have a great set of fuckin'
ears that have blessed me with a fantastic radio career. I can't play music,
but I can determine what sounds good and doesn't...most of the time.

Vivi (aka Line666) Basancon France

Hey Jonathan. What's up ?

So my question will be about girls who does plastic surgery because
her husbands ask them.

If you were a woman and that your husband would ask you to change
anything on your body to please him more, would you agree with him ?

Thanks for your answer.

Cheers, Vivi

Ok, that's not an easy one. For I am not a woman. Ok, say I
was, my answer would be NO. I don't think it's wrong for a woman to do
something to enhance their looks if it makes them feel better and build
their self-esteem. But, if it's being forced upon them verbally by their
partner, than absolutely not.

Now, on the other hand, we live in a society that looks more often is
important than the reality of the normal looks that god gave us.

Vanity, on the other hand is the motivating factor for so much enhancement,
be it a persons decision, or their partner harping about it, and then one goes
ahead and does it even though they felt pressured into it.

Now let's take it from the other direction. As a man, I am happy to still have
hair on the top, not a lot, but I am 59 and not bald. But, if I was being asked
to have hair plugs, or whatever they do...I wouldn't. I am happy the way I am.

Having said that, any woman or man who wants to enhance themselves, so long
as it doesn't affect their health is fine with me Vivi.

AMY SAYS: When I was young I was a sheep, I wanted to make
sure everything I did was "accepted".

But, once I made the decision to not give a fuck...
my life became blissfull.

Amy, I think most everyone starts that way in life,
wanting acceptence. But life doesn't work that way, as you and
many others find out. Interesting you brought that up. Thanks.

female musician you can think of and I'll hit it.

Yes, that includes the horrendous Kelly Osbourne. I'd do her just
cause she's Ozzy's daughter. Think about it, how many people do

Belinda Carlisle
The face of The Go-Go's was born in 1958 in Hollywood, California. Was first an
original member of punk band The Germs.
Pop icon Belinda experienced full blown
American success twice in the 1980s, first with the all female rock band The Go-
Go's and then on an international level (which she always wanted) as a solo artist.
The Go-Go's first album, 1981's Beauty And The Beat, spent six weeks at number 1
and they are still the only all female band ever to have a number 1 album. (Band
meaning where all the members play their own instruments).
Today, Belinda only
occasionally records both as a solo artist and as a member of The Go-Go's. She con-
siders herself a part-timer in these fields as she prefers her home life as opposed to
the nail biting entertainment industry. She appeared in the 1984 Goldie Hawn vehicle
Swing Shift and in 2001 she showed that a 43 year old with no plastic surgery and who
isn't a size 0 can still be sexually viable when she posed nude for Playboy. Ranked #76

And, so many feel that they are IT and stuck up, it makes me sick.

So there is no one for me to pick for I don't know him to give a reason as
to why I would be with him in a heartbeat.

For me it comes down to more then just one happy night.

Gemma Hayes
Popular Irish singer was born in Dublin in 1977. Inspired by the disparate likes of
My Bloody Valentine and Joni Mitchell, Ireland's Gemma Hayes began to receive
a fair amount of notice during 2001 as a rising singer/songwriter. Signed to Fra-
nce's hip Source label on the strength of a demo that lacked any accompanying
information or photos, Hayes, who was 23 at the time of signing, soon got to work
on the five-song 4.35AM EP. Not only did the EP impress critics, but Mark Linkous
(Sparklehorse), Mark Eitzel, and David Gray each expressed admiration and asked
her to tour with them. Following the release of the EP and some sporadic gigs, she
began recording her debut full-length with Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, the Flaming
Lips, Mogwai). Night On My Side came out in the U.K. in 2002, and it was issued in the
U.S. the following year. Currently Gemma lives in Los Angeles and continues to record

Charlize Theron was born on a farm outside Benoni, South Africa in 1975, as an
only child. She got an education as a ballet dancer and has danced both The Swan
Lake and the Nutcracker Suite. There wasn't much for a young actress or dancer to
do in South Africa, so she soon travelled to Europe and USA where she got job at the
Joffrey Ballet in New York. She was also able to work as a photo model.
At the age of
18 her mother made her go to Los Angeles to try a career in the movie industry. After

New Q of THE WEEK: Begins

�DO ME BABY!!� (A fun one)
Which Musician (male or female) would
YOU do in a heartbeat?? WHY??

If it�s a band member (name and band).

If you are married, it�s ok to fanaticize.

*Due to the large volume of answers-this will last for two weeks.

Steph (aka TakeAWalkOnTheWildSide) Cornwall, Ontario Canada

STEPH SAYS: Definately Tim Armstrong (singer of Rancid). Because
I sense it would be very rough and agressive.

Plus, he's super fucking sexy. ;)

Nico (aka T-Starvelous Is The Skinny Bitch) New York City

NICO SAYS: I adore my very own rock star. The love of my life
actually IS in a
popular band called Elefant. (Yes. The singer dated
Lindsay Lohan.)

So OBVIOUSLY I would DO my hunny,
'Mod' (guitarist/Elefant).

I get the fantasy AND the reality every day! ;)

Trisha Dancer Gilbert Arizona

TRISHA SAYS: Haha, aside from the one that you, as my personal friend,
already know about that I DID have years ago for about six months.

Okay, I will then say Joey Jordison from Slipknot. I met him in May after
the Ministry show, and I didn't even know who he was at first (because I'm
used to how he looks with Slipknot and I didn't realize he was drumming on
Ministry's tour until that night).

But I thought he was hot with his long black hair, blue eyes and pierced lip,
plus his personality rocks just as much as his drumming skills!

Yep, I would totally go there.

And as for the aforementioned one, I would do him again. And again. And again.
He was THAT good. :P

Soph (aka Fuck Face) Abertawe United Kingdom

SOPH SAYS: Davey Havok from AFI. Purely because my boyfriend
looks alot like him.

And I find his voice unbelievably sexxxxxy.

And I like guys that aren't afraid to wear make up :)

Alicia (aka I Love Elvis Presley!!) Cleveland area, Ohio

ALICIA SAYS: Butch Walker. He is sexy and his music is amazing.

Female wise, and I know I'll get picked on for this one, Jessica Simpson
- for obvious reasons that have nothing to do with her music.


Janet (aka Interplanet Janet) New Jersey

JANET SAYS: Does he have to still be alive? - because the voice of
INXS, Michael Hutchence, would be number 1 on my list!!

How offensive that they'd have a TV show trying to find another singer
to replace him. That man had more sex appeal in his pinky finger than
most men have in their entire body!

I guess it's no different than the Doors of the 21st Century using
Ian Astbury
to replace Jim Morrison...the only difference that made
it acceptable is the fact that the Cult is my favorite band- LOL!

(I guess you could say it's hypocrisy, but at least Ian isn't from a
reality show!!)

Michelle Yeoh
It's no secret (especially people that know me best) that this woman is one
my favorite actresses of all-time. I would love to meet her, at least just once

Born as Yang Zi Chong in the mining town of Ipoh in West Malaysia
in the lunar year of the Tiger (1962), she spoke English and Malay before Chinese.
A ballet dancer since age 4, she moved to London, England to study at the Royal
Academy as a teenager. After a brief dance career, she won the Miss Malaysia
beauty pageant title in her native country and the Miss Moomba beauty pageant
title in Melbourne, Australia in the early 1980s. Her first on camera work was a 1984
commercial with martial arts star Jackie Chan. In 1985, she began making action
movies with D&B Films of Hong Kong. She was first billed as Michelle Khan, then later,
Michelle Yeoh. Never a trained martial artist, she relied on her dance discipline and
her on-set trainers to prepare for her martial arts action scenes.
One of the only
female stars whom Jackie Chan lets do her own stunts. Chosen by "People" magazine
as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 1997.One of the highest paid
Chinese-language actresses in the world. Surname, "Yeoh" is pronounced "yo". For

Melissa Keller
Born in 1979, in Long Lake, Minnesota, Melissa Keller had a typical childhood
and was nurtured by a loving family. She was always full of energy and grav-
itated towards winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. Her plan to attend
a local university was put on the back burner after her father sent photos of her
to a local modeling agency, in an attempt to sway his daughter away from her
love of everything "punk." Keller was 15 at the time, and the agency loved her
fresh face. They assigned her to do advertisements for Target and Sears, and
she fell in love with the industry. She stormed onto the scene with Parasuco and
The Gap while still a teenager, and then made back-to-back appearances in
Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue in 2002 and 2003. She has several more camp-
aigns in the bag and continues to be a popular face in the fashion industry.
metics companies continued to be Keller's main suitors, as she took on contracts
with L'Oral and Aveda in 2001. Today she does some acting, and is still a spokes-
person for numerous companies.

Greer Auckland New Zealand

GREER SAYS: Choosin' to go to a certain cafe one day ten years
ago, because my boyfriend owned it.

And we are still together now and have our beautiful daughter.

Nice Greer.

Lamia Cross Vocalist Paris France

LAMIA SAYS: Well, it was in August 1993, for the first time I had
decided to go to a night club alone in Paris.^^

I used to come to stay at my friend's appartment durling school
holidays but this thime she has been back in Tokyo....so it was a
big adventure for me to stay in Paris for a month without my friend
especially to go out at night.

I am very well satisfied about my decision even now.

Because this night of August 24th 1993, I have met a Beast of my life,
Fab. His Japanese tattoos made me a chance to talk with him .^_^..r{}

JONATHAN: Another love story. ;-)

Friendly Dr. Bobo Boboville Massachusetts

DR. BOBO SAYS: True- I had a promising media career, but
fought so hard with my boss over quality of product presented
that he fired me.

He wanted to present shit. I did not. It was the beginning of the
end that had no middle.

Still would do it all the same again as I have not changed and do
not plan on it ever. Humbleness is overrated.

I looked over the map, and could not find Boboville.
Where the hell is it? -lol

Shawn Rock (R) Air Personality Manhattan Kansas

SHAWN SAYS: My move to Phoenix changed my life forever.

It was the best decision I've ever made. Working at KUPD was
the greatest work experience I've ever had. If it wasn't for every-
one there, my life wouldn't be going the way that it is.

I will never regret moving there. That's where I met the love of
my life and I'm so happy. I miss all my friends, and I know we'll
meet again.

JONATHAN: Hey Shawn, we all miss you too. Moving to Kansas was
a good move for your career. Maybe not as nice as Phoenix, but still,
a good move nonetheless.

Tracey Preston United Kingdom

TRACEY SAYS: I suppose both the sudden death of my fiance
4-years ago, and my own near death experience 2 years back.

Just made me realise more than ever that life should be enjoyed
and indeed treasured.

Tracey x

You are a strong person Tracey to deal with both.
I admire that. Stay strong.

Mullet Mike Phoenix Arizona

MIKE SAYS: I left the company I was working for to start my
own business earlier this year.

It was a huge, scary leap. What if I failed? How would I get by?
But so far it's paying off. Little by little I've been growing and am
now breaking even after only a few months which is already ahead
of schedule.

A little more time and I'll start coming out ahead of where I was a
few months ago. It was scary, but it's worth it.

Mike, I can relate. I've done my my own business a few
times in my career, and I've worked for both big Corporations and
mom and pop business'. Being on your own has both, highs and lows.
But, overall...if you can handle them...it's well worth it.

Q of THE WEEK: (see Monday)

Jeanette (aka Moxy) Vocalist Los Angeles California

JEANETTE SAYS: Hey Jonathan! Nice to hear from you!
Hmm. tough question this time.

Well, some obvious decisions come to mind - moving to Los Angeles -
but the night that I came up with the name MOXY.

I made the decision to see a band at CBGB's in the pouring rain. I had
to come up with a band name by the next day for a big show and I
needed to take a break from my brainstorming that was going nowhere.

I wasn't gonna go - but I jumped in a cab anyway.

The taxi driver old me a story about how he was in a band in the late 60s
called Group Image, and how he was on te cover of Time magazine in 1967.
I didn't know if I should believe him, but just a side note - I later found the
issue of Time Magazine he was telling me about.

As I was getting out of the cab he said - "Girl, you've got MOXY."

And I knew at that second that I had found my band name - MOXY!!

When I walked up to CBGB's, I realized I had forgotten my money - and I
missed the show and went back home, albeit with a killer band name.

JONATHAN: Life does take strange twists and turns Jeanette, right?
Great story. ;-)

Space Worcestershire United Kingdom

SPACE SAYS: '....Having a REALLY SHORT 'ra ra' style skirt on in a
winebar in the early 80's dancing to Quiet Life by Japan....and being
spotted by the now KIDS Dad and his mate... his mate asked me if
I could look afer his leather Jacket whilst he went to the loo...(...now

...told him 'one bottle would DO!'.....hence ...lived in 'POVERTY'
ever since!!!
...(Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...Can I say ...SHAG????) :X
.............wha'??????? ;p

Debby (aka Living Dead Girl) Phoenix Arizona

DEBBY SAYS: I want to say marriage, but I think the real change
in my life came when I moved from Dallas to California and got
onto my feet and chose a career path.

I still miss my friends from Dallas and the city itself but I am glad I
moved. I just wish I could move back. I feel like I am missing out on
life by being here.

JONATHAN: I am dealing with that right now Debby. My wife Jeanette
would much rather be back in Los Angeles. It was NOT a popular decision
to move back to Phoenix after 10-years in LA on her end. I miss it too,
but that's life. ;-(

Bad Kitty Denver Colorado

KITTY SAYS: Joining MySpace!!! Ha...ha...cheers!! ;D

I find that amusing. Cheers.

Saskia (aka Uncle Drosselmeyer�) London England

Urm. Probably to tell my parents and everyone
I was bisexual.

And, introducing my girlfriend to my folks as well.

It changed how me and my parents got along. In a good way :D

And, now I don't have to like, lie or think about what I am saying
before I talk to them or my mates.

Made me realise being honest is good. It just makes things easier.

Yes, honesty beats making up lies, which pile up.
Good move Saskia. ;-)

Janna ? (aka Rain or now Banana-na-na!) Los Angeles California

JANNA ? SAYS: Woah...because I JUST changed my name to the "Rain"
thing from "Timing ISN'T everything!"

Thanks--gonna check out your site!! Ciao!

You are so funny. You change your name so often, that
in the span of a few days since you sent this...you are now Banana-na-na!
Don't even know if Janna is your real name, but that is also on your
profile too. -LOL

Sue Manager/Promoter-Shrine Of The Monkey-Sheffield England

Thats an easy one. I was unhappily married. My friend
asked me to go along to a gig in Barnsley to see a band called
Seventh Son.

I just said," oh, I used to go out with the bass player when I was 18".

I knew he would still be in the band. Went along to the gig and sure
enough he was still in the band. Went to see him over the next year,
and eventually after re-aquainting ourselves with each other, every
so often at the gigs, we got back together.

Seventh Son don't do a lot of gigs cos of their other band commitments,
so Rich started Shrine of the Monkey up about 16 months ago.

Hope that is ok? Oh, the other thing was becoming the manager/promoter
of the band, I have finally found my niche, something I love doing and I
am good at too!

What a great romantic story Sue. Good for you.

Q of THE WEEK: (see yesterday)

Kayla-Jane-DANGER! Model/Dancer California

KAYLA-JANE SAYS: I decided to move to California. It was something
I thought about, tried once-left with mono, then decided and left in a
week with 300 dollars and 2 suitcases.

If I hadn't moved here I wouldn't have met Annaliese- the one who
made me the first godsgirl. I wouldn't have met some of the closest
friends I have...nor would I know my current boyfriend (whom I have
been with for about 9 months now and have lived with for the duration).

I mean hell, moving out to California was one of the best decisions of
my life. I've come a long way since I moved here. I look a lot different
and feel much more grown up.

Thank you California. I haven't given up yet.

JONATHAN: I think California is the BEST! I wish I didn't have to move
after 10-years due to economical reasons. Best of luck to you Kayla-Jane.

CherryMoon Sydney Australia

CHERRYMOON SAYS: I have four children. Each time I made
the decision to have my kids, it altered my life in the sense that
my career would be placed on hold yet again.

It may be cliche, but I would not change my decisions given my
time over again..

I believe that my life with my girls have rewarded me so much
more than any corporate job may have.

What I see each day in my children's eyes can never be matched
by any dollar sign or business lunch...hehe.

Love, CherryMoon

Many a career has been put on hold due to family. I
would think that at one point you will feel a little selfish (it's okay),
to satisfy yourself, albiet a job, or career. Something for you to feel
like your own person. It might take years, but it's something you
might consider. ;-)

Cara (aka C-NILE�) Cooper City Florida

C-NILE� SAYS: I got married (total life change).

Judging by your blog with wedding pix, congrats,
and I assume you are happy. Your answer could have gone
either way, but I figured it out. ;-)

Marrige is hard work. I think it made me kinda a bitch,
but I do look at things differently (on that happy part).

Everybody has their ups and downs.

-Sorry 4 not explaining more.

J.K. Rowling
If you don't know who this woman is, you've been living under a rock.
The creator and author of "Harry Potter" was born
Joanne Rowling in
1965 in Yate, near Bristol, a few miles south of a town called Dursley
(Harry Potter's muggle-family). Her father Peter Rowling was an eng-
ineer for Rolls Royce in Bristol at this time. Her mother, Anne, was half-
French and half-Scottish. One day, stuck on a delayed train for four hours
between Manchester and London, she dreamt up a boy called Harry Potter.
That was in 1990. It took her six years to write the book. Graduated from
Exeter University. Is a former English teacher. She writes all of her books
in longhand, rather than with a computer. When the first Harry Potter novel
was published, the publisher asked her to use initials rather than her first
name because boys would be biased against a book written a woman. Since
she only had one given name, they then asked her to make up another initial;
she took K. from her favorite grandmother, Kathleen. Is one of only two cont-
emporary authors to have a novel spend more than a year on both the N.Y.
Times hardcover and paperback best-seller lists (the other author being
Nicholas Sparks).

Q of THE WEEK: Continues from last week


What decision did you make in your life, that
changed it to the path you are now on?

Be it good, or not so good?

~Traci~ Yucaipa California

TRACI SAYS: Years ago I started digging into Bible Prophecy.
Paralleled it with World events today, Politic...etc, and it has
helped me to view my life, along with the path I guide my

To be successful in everything we do. Interesting...when you
MAKE A DECISION to BELIEVE and see things different from a
different perspective...even the "bad" stuff doesn't look so bad!

Have a great afternoon, ~traci

Traci, you are the first to mention religion so far. That's
not a bad thing at all. Although I myself am not that religious, I do respect
others that incorporate it into their lives.

Alex Falkirk Scotland

ALEX SAYS: Wow! I could answer this question hundreds of times
over, as I have had to make many a difficult decision within the
last few years of my transition.

OK, the biggest decision has to be agreeing with my former wife that
it would be best for all of us within my family unit if I moved out and
transitioned from male to female on my own to protect our kids from
bigoted remarks within society.

It has been the hardest thing I have ever done, but it has changed my
life in a big way, because I now get to be the real me for the last part
of my life.

Luv, Alex. xxx

Alex, you don't know how much I admire you. Actually I
have told you so before. You have so much courage, as well as other
t-girls making a transition that has to be painful both mentally and
physically. I wish you nothing but the best for you and your family.

LadeeSarah Brooklyn New York

SARAH SAYS: Making negatives into positives. When the economy
is slow, it's a good idea to return to college, which is what I did.

Today, I am working on my 2nd Bachelor's degree.

Because of furthering my education, I am more motivated now than
ever to go on to higher education and earn a Master's degree.

JONATHAN: What a solid idea Sarah. I hadn't thought about the
economy and going back to school. Pretty interesting. I'm sure
you are working also, so I commend you at this stage of your life.
